Ex-Lion gets preliminary approval for medical pot dispensary Former Detroit Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson has received preliminary approval of his license application for a medical marijuana dispensary in suburban Detroit. Michigan's Medical Marihuana Licensing Board voted 4-0 Thursday in favor of the application. The board considered preliminary approval for 84 prospective medical marijuana companies and final approval for 17 medical marijuana business licenses. Johnson and his wife have registered the Bloomfield Hills business as Michigan Community Collective.

A giant lion with enormous fangs that roamed the Kenyan savannah more than 20 million years ago was one of the largest ever meat-eating mammals, researchers said Thursday.

A team unearthed the lower jaw, teeth and other bones of a new species, Simbakubwa kutokaafrika -- Swahili for "big African lion".

They calculated it would have weighed up to 1,500 kilogrammes and could have preyed upon the elephant-like creatures that lived there at the time.

Helicopter crash kills four Americans and their pilot in Kenya - police

Helicopter crash kills four Americans and their pilot in Kenya - police Four Americans and their Kenyan pilot were killed when their helicopter crashed on a remote island in Lake Turkana in a national park in northwest Kenya, police said on Monday. The aircraft came down in Central Island National Park at around 8 p.m. on Sunday, police said, killing all on board. The cause of the crash had yet to be determined. "Available information indicates that two helicopters had landed earlier at Labolo tented Camp on the National Park’s Island, however one managed to clear the area safely," Kenya's National Police Service said on its Twitter feed.

"Based on its massive teeth, Simbakubwa was a specialised hyper-carnivore that was significantly larger than the modern lion and possibly larger than a polar bear," said Matthew Borths, from Duke University, who co-led the research with Ohio University.

The team behind the study, published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, said Simbakubwa lived in what is modern-day Kenya around 23 million years ago, a key period in the evolution of carnivorous mammals.

They said the discovery could shed light on how supersized predators and prey evolved over millions of years around the end of the Paleogene epoch -- the period where mammals grew from tiny rodents into many diverse species.
